Dubai and Lagos are two routes that will be operationally in range of the new A321's. Launching a 2-3 flight per week A321 schedule to Dubai could possibly work on O&D traffic alone. I cant imagine the powers that be being very encouraging of a Lagos route sadly.

Another possibility is subbing one or two A330's / A350 or a 777 from BA or IB for the summer season when the capacity is needed. Like the Omni 767s a few years ago. Not a great long term solution though due to product inconsistencies.
